Weekend break

Last weekend I had a fabulous time with my family in Edinburgh.  We flew up on Friday night and came back on Sunday night.  It was a very busy couple of days but we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  We were all tired yesterday but it was worth it.

Our trip was made extra special by meeting up with my good friend Janice who I haven't seen for about three years.  It was great to have a laugh and catch up with her and she was kind enough to acted as our own personal tour guide.  I managed to persuaded her to climb Scott Monument with me and my son.  No wonder our legs ached!! 

I also met this chap in Edinburgh castle but he wasn't as talkative as Janice.

If you haven't been to Edinburgh I would recommend it.  It was a lovely city to visit and I will be going back again for sure.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and leave a comment so I can return the visit to your blog.

Inspiration strikes

Visiting my favourite blogs the other day I stopped at Kaz's Slightly Wonky Crafts and was inspired by her card to make one similar of my own.

Kaz has made her card for Tando with an accompanying video which is a great way to learn a new technique and that is just what I did for this card.  Using the Tando mask and some Distress Ink worked through the holes.  I think it gives a great effect with the circles.

The stamp is a Gorjuss Girl one and the sentiment is cut from a piece of Scenic Route paper and a little doodling to finish it off.

Thanks for visiting my blog today please leave a comment so I can come and visit your blog too.

Of course with all the cards I made last week I didn't have a card I needed for a male birthday today grrrrr! so I made this card yesterday.

Very simple and if I wasn't in so much of a hurry I probably would have included some more elements but heyho here it is.

The little ram is from a set from Mama Elephant.

Thanks for dropping by.

Card Catch Up

I thought I would use some of my holiday time re stocking my card box as it seems to have run low on premade cards.  You know what I mean, those last minute birthday cards that crop up from time to time, or is that just me?  tee hee

Well yesterday I spent the morning making these and thought I would show them on my blog. I haven't had alot to show recently because I've been journalling more.

Thank you if you have visited my blog today.
Please leave a comment and then I can visit
your blog and see your work.
